Broken Arch

Colin jumped up and down for more emphasis, "I wanna watch Lil Einsteins AGAIN!" Unfortunately, on the last syllable, his little foot came down on on of the toy metal airplanes that belonged to his dad as a kid. Colin had just put them down on the floor, and the miniature metal tail went into his arch. He cried in pain and broke my heart, although I was glad for once it was not my fault (too often it seems I accidentally close little fingers in drawers, etc, and it kills me!).

The cut wasn't too deep, and his tears were soothed quickly by the prospect of a Dora Bandaid (he asks for them 20 times a day and I say, "No, that doesn't need a bandaid." This time, I was offering it without being asked).

Now when he walks, he mostly holds the heel of the hurt foot up. He looks like an imitation of the Greek statue doing Discus, or if he's excited and jumping up and down, like a toy poodle up on its back legs!

Ohhhh, Ouch!!! Poor little bloke - hope it gets better soon Colin XX Luke asks for Calpol (infant paracetmal syrup) a few times a day as he loves the taste. He says "I'm hot" (with his hand to his forehead for extra emphasis) "need capol". Needless to say he doesn't get it.

Ditto, Paula - Ouch! At first I thought you meant he actually broke his arch and that didn't sound good. He is a lot like Tigger - bouncey, bouncey little boy.
Love, Nana

Ah, poor Colin. I too thought at first you meant he broke his foot. Glad it could be fixed with a Dora bandaid.
